I WRITE BECAUSE of what the written word has done for me. I spent my childhood deep in the heart of adventure novels. I’ve always wanted to give that experience back to others.


I’VE FISHED all over the world for all manner of creatures. That is the same thrill that pushes my readers away from their comfortable lives and into the wild places of the world.


I SEEK ADVENTURE because out there in this big old world there are so many people and places to see. The deeper, further, and more remote, the better.

“Such Splendid Mystery”

I am an author, an angler, and an adventurer. I am here to share my stories with you. If you want to experience the inner poetry of the outer wilds, follow me, and I will take you there.
